What made me scurry home from the store to finish the skirt? Not the Waist Maker.... it was the new rule I made myself about buying new patterns or fabric..... Well I think Suzy Orman was involved. I saw a commercial where she pointed to a pile of money and then at a few dresses and said: "Would you rather have this or this...." And I was thinking I don't have either one, I have a pile of fabric and patterns. EVEN WORSE!!!!!!! And when I went to the store to look at buttons I saw something I wanted to buy- crap!
After I married up all or most of the fabric I have with the pattern that belongs to them, I had a few non matched patterns to store in the back of my mind. So, made the rule that I can't buy anything that doesn't already have a pattern or fabric in my possession AND must finish one project to buy a piece of next.... so finished skirt... bought this awesome silk to match up with Cynthia Steffe Vogue dress pattern I already had. This is such an awesome print. I never see anything this amazing and there was only 5 yards left. Yes, it was 20% off but I won't tell you of what price. But let's say you can't buy a silk dress for that much..... and keep it at that. Quality people, not quantity. Now I just need purple silk lining.
|97% Silk/ 3% Lycra- weird to add lycra. At Josephene's Dry Goods where I bought the buttons for next project|
|This is a better photo of the fabric. Button is plastic bowl with deep dish in the center. Really cool. 2$ each- YIKES|
